If I have a garmin 50lm and I got it stolen and they reset it after they turn it on can be be trace or track by law enforcement??????


Car GPS units are receivers only. They do not have a transmitter that can be used for tracking. I am sorry that it was stolen. Report it to Garmin and the police. Also, post it at the following link so people can be made aware of it:

Any time I plug my Nuvi 205 into my car charger, it shows that it is in pc link mode. How do I get my Nuvi 205 to get out of pc link mode while it is plugged into my car? It renders the GPS useless as it...


Sometimes this problem is caused by the charger plug not going far enough into the mini usb socket of the satnav. It feels as if it's fully in but it's not. Pushing it in further usually solves the problem. As your charger is not a garmin make there's no guarantee but there should be very little difference so it's worth a try.

My GPS was stolen


Only if you GPS is working, or in stand by. The manufacturer garmin should normaly be able to get the info if the stoler is using the GPS.

You have specific codes to the GPS, if you have it, you should be able to get in touch with garmin. (not all manufacturers provide this service.

Stolen garmin


No, the unit can not be tracked by radio signals as its a receive only device, however I would contact garmin and let them know (in addition to your local police dept.) that it has been stolen. If you buy a new GPS there are measures you can take to prevent theft & help recover a stolen GPS. Please see this link:

My garmin 205 seems to have lost its fix. Its position is out by about 100m, tracking established roads but to one side or other then loses roads altogether then gets totally lost. Is a map update...


Whenever these devices start acting up, I recommend performing a hard reset of your Gamin Nuvi 205. Also, use Garmin's WebUpdater service to make sure you have the latest software on your device. There have been numerous fixes to the firmware to allow the Garmin 205 or acquire satellite signal faster, and to be more accurate with your location.

I hope that helps.

Someone took my garmin nuvi 250w can i track it?


sadly, no. garmin and most GPS devices are strictly GPS receivers, meaning they do not output any kind of signal that can be tracked. If your device has been stolen, i recommend that you register your device if it is not already registered with Garmin.

I bought a garmin nuvi 205 from someone very cheap he had three and show me 1 working fine so i bought the other one which is the 250 garmin and when i got home it was lock on the screen


Call him back and get your money back. You cannot unlock these, we can't unlock it either. It must go back to Garmin with the original receipt to be unlocked. If you bought it very cheap and he didn't giveyou the PIN, it was probably stolen.
